  • Is surgery necessary for herniated disk?

    No. Surgery is usually the last resort unless you have weakness or other severe neurological symptoms. Most disk herniations can be treated effectively with a combination of conservative treatments. This usually involves medicines, physical therapy/chiropractic treatment, and Pain Management for injection therapies. Your primary care doctor usually is all that is required to make the appropriate referrals, but if you are concerned or do not have a PMD, then seek consultation for a neurologist or a spine specialist (neuro or orthopedic surgeon) to get you started on the road towards recovery.
